"When Hope Blossoms," by Kim Vogel Sawyer

"When Hope Blossoms," by Kim Vogel Sawyer
Amy Knackstedt hopes a new start in Weaverly, Kansas, will help heal the pain of losing her husband and provide a better future for her three children. But her new neighbor, Tim Roper, is not pleased to have an Old Order Mennonite family living next to his apple orchard. Tim left the Mennonite faith years ago and doesn't want any reminders of his former life.

Yet when circumstances throw Amy and Tim together, they form a friendship that surprises them both. Will past hurts always be a barrier between them, or will this tentative relationship blossom into something more?

Have to say this book was a pleasant read.  The characters of the children were delightful and you couldn't help but love them; especially Adrianna.  The storyline was believable and there was a slight twist in it, that I didn't see coming.  You can probably guess the outcome and it was a pleasant one.  I feel there could be a follow up book to this one as the book did stop just like that.  I would have preferred an epilogue just to put an end to the story.  Quite often though you writers don't do that and this was the case here.

Stars out of 5 : 4 a quick and easy read for a hot Summer's day with a happy outcome and nothing too over taxing on the brain.

  1. It sounds good Gill. I am always on the look out for recommendations. Do you think it would suit my 90 year old mother who does not tolerate bad language and is not keen on too much sex either (if you see what I mean). Hope you are well. A x
